Posted

BRATTLEBORO >> The 15-5 Twin Valley varsity boys basketball team was seeded 5th in the Division 3 Tournament and will welcome No. 12 Peoples Academy (5-15) in a playdown game on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Brett Swanson is the leading scorer for the Wildcats at 13.3 points per game and is followed closely by teammates DJ Lazelle (12.4), Kyle Murdock (10.1), Skyler Boyd (9.2) and Justin Hicks (8.6). Murdock is averaging a team-high 9.1 rebounds per contest, while Hicks is dishing out a team-best 5.2 assists a game.

Three other area boys basketball teams will try to pull off upsets on the road. No. 9 Brattleboro (11-9) will play at No. 8 Burr and Burton (11-9) in tonight's D-1 playdown game at 7, 12th-seeded Bellows Falls (10-10) will visit No. 5 Woodstock (13-7) in a D-2 showdown tonight at 7, and 10th-ranked Leland & Gray (7-13) will take on No. 7 Randolph in a D-3 battle on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The Colonels are coming off of a 59-48 Senior Night loss to rival MAU on Friday night. Dylan DeJordy and Eli Lombardi were the top guns for Brattleboro in that one with 10 points apiece.

Leland & Gray got 23 points from Nick Morrow, 13 more from Owyn White and eight from Clayton Sanderson in a recent rout of Poultney. And Shane Clark has had his share of offensive explosions for the Terriers, including a 24-point outing at home in mid January.
